At long last, my poetry collection, Every Glittering Chimera, is here! Published by the wonderful Blue Light Press.
Pulitzer Prize winning poet Stephen Dunn calls the book a “fine and brave debut.”
In the book we follow the chimera (a mythical female monster that was part lion, part serpent, part goat) and take a hard look at the seeming negatives and positives of life’s journey. We journey across time and locale, from the mid-century Brooklyn, where “chickens squawk in Grandma’s backyard,” to the contemporary.
Stuart Dischell, the author of the poetry collections Dig Safe and Children with Enemies, says: “With a sharp eye for the resonant details and images of the world, and with a sharp wit and honed voice, Rosalind Brenner’s Every Glittering Chimera is a deeply human and humane book that explores the mystery and riddle of our lives.”
Check it out for yourself and read an excerpt from the book here.
I will be reading from Every Glittering Chimera in the East Hampton Poetry Marathon series on Sunday, July 7th at 5:30 pm at Mulford Farm in East Hampton, NY.
